which he gifted us with yesterday and general petraeus, the c.i.a. had no idea when he said i wanted to tap that, he meant something completely different. let's go to lisa ferguson for a current news update. >> hey john. always good to have you on the show. good morning everyone. the president is dealing with the aftermath of hurricane sandy today. he heads to new york this morning to look at the damage and to thank first responders who risked their lives last month. later this evening president obama will host the cast and crew of the movie "lincoln" for a screening at the white house. he is coming off a very important news conference yesterday. not only was this the first since his re-election, it was also the first he's held in eight months. several reporters did want to talk about the general petraeus scandal, of course but the president fortunately did get to spend a lot of time on the fiscal cliff which is what he was hoping for. while left room for a compromise by not taking a hard, red line on taxes
be on the c.i.a. and army security brief in benghazi. he said people really love a real housewives of the pentagon headlines. >> john: tariq salahi has nothing to do with this case. he's done nothing news worthy and he's in the news. >> yeah. he's on expert on being in inappropriate places at inappropriate times. >> john: famous for no reason. i'm so relieved by that. >> he's running for governor. >> john: he was running for governor. i think we would have known if he won. >> no, virginia election is next year. >> john: oh. >> he's running in virginia. >> john: i didn't realize that >> against -- >> john: we had him on cnn a few months ago. it is really remarkable. this guy is the first guy ever to parlay an entire career out of crashing a party and having his wife leave him for a guy from journey. hard to pull it off. >> it's wild. finally, the price of thanksgiving dinner is about the same as last year. according to the american farm bureau federation, you can apparently put dinner on the table for ten pe
? >> good. good to hear your voice. >> great to hear yours. on the benghazi thing with the c.i.a. and them doing the investigation. if it was a republican in office you guys would be harping all over it. what we need to find out is why the c.i.a. -- if all information is given to why they knew about what was going on probably happened -- >> hey charles did you not hear the show ten minutes ago? i said exactly that. i said we need to have some hearings and investigation as to why the c.i.a. fed wrong information or got wrong information and by the way yeah, it is a good comparison as far as republicans because i seem to recall that agencies of the bush administration got the intelligence wrong or in some cases, got it right and oh, by the way that intelligence was twisted by the bush administration and then 4,000 americans die in a war called iraq. so yes. >> that's the point i'm making is that we have to find out why certain information was not given out. it doesn't matter who's in office we need to find out why
's right. i'm saying this one affair and petraeus, we could not accept petraeus as the c.i.a. director? was he a good general? yeah, he was a great general. did he do a good job in iraq? he did a great job at iraq. was was he doing a good job at the c.i.a.? yes. end of story. we place too much importance on this. it just seems to me as americans we were still living in the victorian age and that's why petraeus felt that he had to resign. sad day. for this country. i believe. 1-866-55-press. invite you to join in and we'll be joined by joe cirincione. hopefully when we come back here on the "full court press." >> announcer: chatting with you live at current.com/billpress. this is the "bill press show." live on your radio and current tv. in 24-hour, around-the-clock cyberwarfare operations. you're about to watch an ad message created by a current tv viewer for capella university. matter. education is the key. it is the vehicle. it's the way in which we evolve. every journey is different every possibility is unique. but th
could finally get the answers they're demanding today in the investigation into former c.i.a. director david petraeus. the fbi and c.i.a. say they will brief members of the house and senate intelligence committees laying out how they handled the case and standing by their claim that politics were not involved in their decision to keep lawmakers in the dark. at least four people are now caught up in the investigation. along with petraeus and paula broadwell, there is jill kelley and top afghanistan commander john allen. the pentagon is now investigating general allen for allegedly sending thousands of inappropriate e-mails to kelley but allen is saying he did nothing wrong and the president and the army are standing by him. >> the president thinks very highly of general allen and his service to his country. as well as the job he has done in afghanistan. >> i believe john allen until somebody proves otherwise i believe that he did nothing inappropriate. >> that was white house spokesman jay carney and former army
involving now former c.i.a. director david petraeus and his extramarital affair with the author of his biography paula broadwell. another american is now getting caught up in the whole thing and that is the top commander in afghanistan, general john allen. turns out the pentagon is now investigating him as well for sending inappropriate e-mails to jill kelly. now, if you remember from yesterday, kelly is the same woman who sparked this whole investigation because petraeus' mistress paula broadwell was sending her e-mails. allen is saying he did nothing wrong and is maintaining his current position within the military. now, many are wondering why the fbi would get involved if this is nothing more than an affair. but we're now hearing fears of potential security leaks. in a speech at the university of denver broadwell suggested the libya attack was targeting a secret prison at the benghazi consulate. federal agents have been searching broadwell's home. late last night and into early this morning. not only did she have thousa
. then they put out a statement the essence of it seems to be that acting c.i.a. director michael morrell said that the talking points have been changed by the fbi because of an on-going criminal investigation. and they were very troubled by this because of course we had already been told it was the dni that changed them. then they got a call at 4:00 p.m. from the c.i.a., actually, no it wasn't. it was us. we changed them. so then they're going what the bleep is going on? they can't get their act straight. and yet the focus of their rage when they came out from the meeting was susan rice, not michael morrell. >> bill: right. so susan rice, first of all not responsible for security at consulates or embassies around the country. number two, she's not the one who wrote those intelligence reports or provided the material for the intelligence report that she -- the findings of which she simply read or reported on. if the anger should be directed toward anybody it should be against the c.i.a. or the fbi or whoever did not have all o
needs him running the cia, if he can do for america what he did for afghanistan, why would you want him leaving? >> yeah. >> john: please feel free to give us a call at 866-55-press. dan it is in "full court press" time? >> you mentioned the american music awards they were handed out for the 40th consecutive year last night. just inn bieber was the night's big winner, nicki minaj, and carly jettison was named the new hit artist -- >> john: well it's like the four horseman of the apocalypse. this is the prop here! read those names again. >> justin bieber nicki minaj, lincoln park -- >> john: lincoln park is an actual band. that is the only actual rock and roll artist. justin bieber, i believe plays some guitar. >> that's a stretch. >> john: well, i'm not saying he is neil young, i'm say heing plays guitar five times more than new kids on the block. if we were in prison together, i would want him as my cell mate. [ laughter ] >> president obama became the first sitting american president to visit myanmar. mtv says the -- >> john: carly ray jebson. call me maybe, where she
previously and not only the fiscal cliff but the susan rice. send her down there. send the cia down there. we are not moving and we are not going to let yougo get away with villinizing our administration a new obama going into the next 4iers. i am hoping we will see a lot more progressive reforms because of it. >> i hope you are right, too. we talked about this. something i want to get to at the top of the hour. obama has every reason right? to feel the power and exercise the power. every day -- i mean he won. okay? he won on november 6th, the popular vote the electoral vote overwhelmingly but i didn't realize there are still millions of votes still uncounted and every day, his margin keeps getting bigger and bigger and bigger. he is now a 51%, and romney is at 47%. there is something magic about the 47%. right? >> beautifully reviewed up. it's so good >> bill: the fact he ends up part of the 47%. obama, 51%. he beat romney by more than george bush beat john kerry in 2004. >> that's a solid, solid victory. he has a mandate. >> i think he definitely has
by the way talking points were prepared by the intelligence agencies. we do know that is it the c.i.a. or the fbi, one or the other deleted any reference to possible terrorist activity at the time because they didn't want to trigger or let people know that's what they were looking into but again she's not the one that wrote the talking points or edited the talking points. she also said at the time look, these may not prove to be true down the road but this is what we've got so far. >> that's right. my impression of this is yours which is that she read from prepared talking points and delivered messages that had been vetted and developed by the intelligence community in what was a chaotic and rapidly developing situation. it became clear fairly quickly that the attack on the benghazi consulate was a premeditated effort by terrorists. the president used the word terrorist actions the next day. and this isn't something -- this isn't iran-contra. this wasn't concealed for six months or a year. there wasn't complete disavow o
